The Fall of the House of Usher – Artist: Kurt Hauser & Pi Art Collective

At it’s heart this is a performance piece. A synthesis of traditional burn arts (music, fire and large scale art) with drama. The piece explores the dark side of the psyche culminating in a firey final reckoning. Immediacy and impermanence are overarching themes. The performance is a dramatic interpretation of the short story The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allan Poe.

 

Artists, Kurt Hauser of the Pi Art Collective, including Audel Snow, Trey Butler, Heather Dessel and Rachel Taccarello
